Political cartoonist Tom Tomorrow has virtually defined the nightmarescape satire of 1950s images that runs through our culture today

A chronicle of the worst years of our lives as seen through the eyes of cartoonist Tom Tomorrow.

For years, Tom Tomorrow's acerbic and hilarious political cartoon, This Modern World, has been among the most recognizable and widely read in alternative press. In his first full-color compilation, Tom looks unflinchingly at what America has become in the years since 9/11 - and where it is likely headed. His cartoons give us a way to laugh instead of cry was we head toward Hell in a Handbasket. This anthology of more than 140 cartoons provides a starkly revealing snapshot of America's political culture at the dawn of the twenty-first century.

The next time I see Tom Tomorrow, I will thank him for helping America laugh while the world laughed at us. (Michael Moore)

Nothing remotely funny. (Ann Coulter)
